50 Years of Integration: Flushing Then and Now
Join a panel of Flushing experts to share stories and memories about Flushing, and engage in discussion about our neighborhood’s past, present, and future. Bring your memories and ideas, and expect to learn something new about our community. You are also invited to bring any Flushing photographs and memorabilia, and the Queens Memory team will be on hand to digitize them and save them to a thumb drive that you can take home after the presentation. Pictured here, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz joined the program to offer her remarks.
